1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I love the top half, like the bottom half, but the two together seem off(color of pants maybe) to me. (consider my post count/fits, might not know what i'm talking about).
    sticking to my ''no comments w/o posting fit'' rule..travel day...casual. If BP-LI ferry sinks today you won't have to worry about my posts anymore. Enjoy your weekend. [​IMG]

    These pants are like a stone color. They look better in person. Actually, the whole thing looks better in person. The full length pics did not come out very well today. I have other pants that probably would go better, but these were comfortable and that is what I wanted today. I am getting tired of suffering with pants, which I do quite a bit. The hazards of sitting behind a desk all day.

    These pictures give me the opportunity to ask about divots (as I think they are called here on SF) on the right arm below the shoulder. What causes that? I thought I had a good fit on my coat then noticed that, and it is really pissing me off. Can a tailor fix it or is it a bad fit that needs to be scrapped? If it can be fixed, what kind of cost are we talking? Thanks, [​IMG]

    Divots are generally caused by shoulders that are too wide, or sleeves that are too narrow at the sleevehead. This jacket actually does not have divots, the sleeve just kinda got stuck there and caused that shoulder issue. Divots are quite difficult to fix. Although, I have had it done.

    Damn, I think I'm the one who needs the check-up... I'd prefer this with a white square instead of the ?teal one you're wearing. [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Blueish grey with a white edge, actually (says everything about the photo). Did consider white, but thought this looked better.


    Parker, that suit is badmotherfuckingass. Send it to me please? [​IMG]

    I second the praise on this (and the perceptive fit analysis). Not totally sure about the peak lapels, but that's probably just me.

    "She just arrived at Union Station last week from Kansas, see. Said she wanted to be in pictures, but fell in with Momo's crowd over at that gambling joint in San Bernadino. Someone's gotta send a telegram to her mother back in Wichita, ask her where to send the body."

    Out running final errands before tonight's rehearsal and tomorrow's wedding. Surprisingly calm. Also testing out a bag that was a gift from my mom to use on the honeymoon. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG] At least Spoo is not wearing candy socks today...

    Is that manufactured by the same people who make Edible Undies?

    I should dislike this for several reasons, but I don't. Looks great on you, IST.

    I think this lower angle gives a truer sense of the proportions. You should continue with this. Nice fit, too.

    I, too, wore some nice green pants today. They're now pre-treating after the waitress splashed grease on them, my jacket and tie while clearing the table. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks[​IMG] It's a very heavy linen so I suspect it will take at least a year or two of regular (seasonal of course) wearing before it softens up how I want.
